It’s Monday.

The President has tweeted 7 times, deleted two, bringing his total of Monday morning tweets to 5.

President Trump issued his tweets at 8:08 a.m. eastern time. Thirty minutes later, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted this.

The tweets come as tensions between the U.S. and Iran mount.

As the News Blender reported on Thursday, Iran took responsibility for shooting down an unmanned U.S. surveillance drone, that they claim was in Iranian airspace, with the Pentagon saying the drone was in international waters.

The New York Times, reported late Thursday that the President had approved airstrikes against Iran, only to call off the strike within minutes or possibly hours of the approved strike.

The confusion over when exactly the strike was called off comes from President Trump himself, who on Friday as the News Blender reported, stated he called off the strike, “10 minutes before the strike.” In the same tweet he said “we were cocked and loaded.”

In this clip while speaking with Chuck Todd of Meet the Press, he said he called off the strike about half-an-hour before, when he learned that 150 people might be killed in the airstrikes, he also states when asked if planes were in the air, “no, but they would have been pretty soon.”

Saturday evening the President tweeted that he never called “BACK” the strike against Iran and that reports to that affect were incorrect.

For editorial thoughts on Iran.

For Twitters response to the President calling off the strike.

On Wednesday, CNBC News reported that a divided Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged and “indicated formally that no cuts are coming in 2019.”

The vote to leave the target benchmark rate in the “target range of 2.25 percent to 2.5 percent,” the range it has been since December, was 9-1 with St. Louis Fed President James Bullard, voting to reduce the rate.

On Tuesday the day before the Federal Reserve met, the President blasted the European Central Bank President President Mario Draghi for announcing “further stimulus,” as the News Blender reported, the President called the comments, “unfair to U.S.”

That same day, the President spoke with the press prior to departing D.C., he was asked if he wanted to demote the Fed Chairman Jerome “Jay” Powell, the President according to the White House transcript said in part, “let’s see what he does,” he added, that Draghi “did something today that was very dramatic.”

President Trump during his interview with Chuck Todd aired on Meet the Press, denied that he ever suggested that he might demote Chairman Powell.

For What It’s Worth.

Over the weekend the President tweeted that back in the day when our country had “no debt,” everything from our “Highways to the Military,” was built with “CASH,” Twitter as Snip Bytes reported, was quick to point out that our country has only been “debt free” one time, in 1853, and that the first “highway” wasn’t built until the 1950’s.


As a reminder the President’s tweets, from the account @realDonaldTrump are considered and treated as Presidential comments, orders, and records.

The link the President has sent out on that same Twitter feed, is a link for a Trump Campaign donation page.

There is a picture featuring Trump, with donate buttons, and a statement that reads in full.

We count on the generous contributions of our supporters to help us fight back against the attacks on President Trump and get our message straight to the American people.

Please contribute in the NEXT HOUR to give us the resources we need to DEFEND President Trump and win in 2020.

I don’t know if this is a violation of campaign finance, if not, it probably should be, considering as stated, his feed is treated as official Presidential communications.

Authors note: the two deleted tweets that he reissued were regarding the Federal Reserve Bank, I was unable to capture those deleted tweets, as I refreshed prior to the screen grab.

This post will be updated within reason.
